Hello, I'm Jan am a mother of three wonderful adult children and a border collie named Ben. I am married to an awesome guy who supports me in all my projects and all the crazy ideas I conjure up.

Whether it’s a new recipe, a fun craft, or some handy tips for your garden and home, I love empowering others with skills they can use to create something that brings joy, improves health, and does it in a simple way.

Teaching yoga and life coaching are some of my other passions. I am certified in Emotion Code and Family Herbology and am a registered yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance. I started teaching yoga in 2001 and continue to do so.

After being diagnosed with an autoimmune condition many years ago, I began to think and do things differently. I took a more holistic approach to healing and, through trial and error, have learned some pretty awesome stuff.

My intention for this website is to share tips and tutorials that I have found on my journey of life, which have brought me joy, improved health, and peace. I hope that they will do the same for you.

I hope you’ll join me on this journey!
